    I tried to buy it, but origin refuses to accept my credit card. Looks like i will be giving my money to valve instead.

    Trust me if there's one thing EA made sure Origin could do well first and foremost it is accept payment. So likely it's your card, perhaps related to being in 'Nam?

    Brandon had the same issue actually took EA forever to fix the problem months and months and months, so no they DIDNT do a good job of accepting payment lol

    most likely whats happening is when you attempt to buy its listing your purchase as potentially fraudulent and as such refuses to complete the transaction.

    Yeah Brandon our local dresser n' bacon had this same issue. Him (silkstone) being in Nam has nothing to do with it.

    Now if Origin can gift (didnt used too) you can find a trusted online buddy and have them gift it to ya after you pay them.

    I'm pretty sure it's due to my location, though it has never proved a problem with anything else i have bought from the states.

    I have no idea how it would be flagged as fraudulent based on anything else. I have the game in a form anyway, but i thought i'd give multi-player a blast even though there is only 1 server that's possible for me to play on (HK) so it's no great loss.

    Vietnam has bad reputation when it comes to IP, but it's something that is changing. There are more and more services becoming available that are being use; iTunes and some other online music providers as well as steam. 100% of the software i own would be illegitimate if it weren;t for these.

    Great price $23 dollars each.. since it is UK will it work in the US?

    If so put me down for the other 3 copies please.

    Will check it out when i get home from work, our web filter blocks that address.
    Thanks

    I like having a job but I hate having to work, no real middle ground in the grown-up-real-world, and I just don't like that!

    What the crap? Lol, I fixed it. The page wasn't loading so I hit the submit button again, and obviously it posted twice.

    Yeah, like Mark Twain said: "I really needed a job, and I had only one condition: I didn't want to work."

    That's not a direct quote but that's the gist.

    Use code "1GFT82012" for 20% on Gamelfy, a few:
    Torchlight II $15.99
    Fear 3 $3.99
    Lord of the Rings: War in the North $3.99
    Resident Evil 5 $7.99
    Bastion $3

    I've bought several games from greenmangaming, without any real issue. Once my credit card threw a fraud alert so I paid with PP. all the games I ever bought there activated on Steam, so I just took the key and activated it.

    There's a thread going on on Hardforum about d2p claiming Russian keys and such, take a look through.

    If you're interested in PC digital download sales/deals, check out the site I've been working on:

    http://www.cheapshark.com/

    Basically it automatically indexes deals from Steam, Amazon, Gamer's Gate, GreenManGaming (and others). It also automatically rates them based on percent off, metacritic score, price history, and a few other factors.

    Plus, if you want you can sign up for email alerts that let you know once a game has reached a price you want (or lower).

    If you have any feedback, let me know, the site is still fairly new.
    Darkleoco, Zebeon, mastrdrver and 2 others say thanks.

    Not bad at all, pretty great IMO. Any way you can find a way I incorporate coupon codes that are active, for sites like GMG or GF, as they often have discount codes. Would be cool.

    But very nice :toast:
